At Whitecross Hereford each student is supported by a Learning and Careers Advisor. Mrs Boucher and Mrs Davis support students from Year 8 until they leave, not only with their learning and organisational skills but with careers and post 16 college options. Mrs Boucher looks after students in Hagloe and Moyle. Mrs Davis looks after students in Bromley and Styre. Mrs B Smith supports students in Years 7 and 8 in all four Academies.
Students have mainly individual appointments each year after which a report is written and targets are set where necessary. In Year 9 students receive support with selecting their GCSE options and there is an increased focus on careers in Years 10 and 11.
Mrs Honnor, our Higher Starter Co-ordinator, also meets with students in Years 7 and 8 to help them develop good study practice. Her main focus concerns the higher starters throughout their time at Whitecross Hereford.
